    A big thanks to everyone that voted, I'm very honored to be recognized among so many great builders. This challenge was a ton of fun, and a great learning experience for me. I want to send out a big thank you to the TDPRI, the moderators, and all the members. The TDPRI is the gold standard in forums, and it's because of the members and moderators. I'm already dreaming about my next build.

    Congrats to the winners! Y'all deserve it, and I'm really stoked for ya.
    Thanks also to the 99 forum brothers who preferred a hearty ale over a fine lager (even though it really is la guitarra mas fina!).
    And congrats and thanks to all the participants who made it a worthwhile experience.
    Cheers!

    yeah, i checked in the voting one day and we were tied 50 to 50 and it was quit a thrill to be neck and neck, but then i knew i was doomed when i saw your wifes blog page and she was sending her blog page friends over here to registrar and vote for you just because it was you, then it was no fun anymore

    Good Show!

    A hearty congrats to all the builders ... :D

    Honestly, every class was hard to choose which to vote for ... a lot of fine instruments, great ideas, build woes and victories, and good banter.

    Surprisingly, the Vintage Reissue class caught my interest ... I've always thought relic-ing a perfectly good guitar was foolish, but am blown away by both entrants efforts ... and results.

    Hooray!

    I learned a lot about guitar building from the build threads and barely read any other posts while the challenge was in full swing. Thanks to all who participated.

    Congrats to the winners.
